“That stops ships hitting the rocks.”
―Salty talking about the lighthouse

Ship Ahoy! is a magazine story, illustrated using photographs from the television series.


One dark, stormy night, Salty and Fergus are passing the lighthouse when its light suddenly goes out. The lighthouse keeper explains that the generator has broken and a ship is approaching the rocks. Salty has an idea and explains that Fergus can use his flywheel to power the generator. Fergus is soon connected to the generator and the light comes back on. The ship sails away to safety.

The next day, the Fat Controller thanks Salty for his quick-thinking and Fergus for his hard work. Salty is very proud.
